In this article, you are going to find a list of all the Priest changes for World of Warcraft Patch 8.3: Visions of N'Zoth.


Discipline Priest

  • Contrition Icon Contrition's base healing reduced by 25%.
  • Contrition Icon Contrition's healing is now correctly affected by Mastery
    • Developers' note: In the aggregate this talent gains value, due to the increase in Penance Icon Penance healing, reduction to Atonement Icon Atonement healing, and Mastery bug fix.
  • Penance Icon Penance healing increased by 15%.
  • Schism Icon Schism now increases damage done from Priest spells and abilities only.
    • Developers' note: This change is intended to make Schism Icon Schism consistent with other similar class cooldowns.
  • Shadow Word: Pain Icon Shadow Word: Pain damage reduced 9%.
  • Purge the Wicked Icon Purge the Wicked damage reduced 10%.
  • Power Word: Solace Icon Power Word: Solace (Talent) damage reduced 10%.
  • Atonement Icon Atonement healing reduced to 50% (was 55%).
  • Mastery: Grace Icon Mastery: Grace effectiveness increased by 12%.
    • Developers' note: Discipline's ability to contribute both damage and healing is slightly too high for what one character can bring to a group composition. At the same time, we are making their Mastery stat slightly more attractive.
